There’s no parking around Sefton Park during the weekend of the festival so we kindly ask you not to drive in.

Every year, LIMF welcomes visitors from all over the UK and beyond. There’s plenty of travel options to reach us refreshed and ready to enjoy the festival. Here’s how you can find us…

By Air

Liverpool’s John Lennon Airport is not too far from Sefton Park where LIMF takes place, so when you arrive in Liverpool why not take the bus. The handy 80A bus service from the airport towards Liverpool can drop you off at Ullet Road / Croxteth Road, close to the park, or the 500 to Aigburth Road is a short walk away.

You can find more detailed information about flight timetables here.

By Train

St Michaels train station is a short walk from Sefton Park, with regular services running throughout the day to easily get you to and from the event. Passengers travelling to LIMF from the Wirral, or on the Kirkby and Ormskirk lines can change at Liverpool Central and board the next train to Hunts Cross on the Northern Line. Southport line passengers can travel direct to St Michael’s station on the Hunts Cross service.
